Title(s): Grimoire of Par Kaar, The Blue Book of Waaz
Language(s): Demonic, with some marginalia in Smadj
Period: The chaotic days of the Wizards of Old.
Author: The obscure wizard Par Kaar, with some additions by an unnamed apprentice of his and margin notes by a later hand but in the ancient hieroglyphs of a nearly-forgotten language.
Blasphemy: The world is a bit like a planetary turducken, with a second, smaller world inside it, and a third, even smaller world insider that one.
- Magic Aura (reversible) (standard LotFP version)
- Slivers of Stone (Invocation/Evocation) (Great Net Spellbook, sixth edition)
Range: 30 yards + 10 yards per level
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: One creature
Saving Throw: None
Author: Peter Gourlay <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This spell creates a stream of sharp stone shards that unerringly hit their target. The stones inflict 1d4 + 1 points of damage. For every three levels gained, the wizard inflicts another 1d4 + 1 points of damage. This spell is the earth elementalist version of the magic missile spell, and protections against that spell are also useful against Slivers of Stone. Slivers of stone has the same limitations as magic missile. The material component of this spell is a handful of stones, which must be thrown at the target.
- Par-Kher’s Pain Blast (Arduin Grimoire III)
Level: 4th Area Effected: 30' diameter. Number Effected : All within 30' diameter. Effects: Blast of sheer pain. All within go insane with pain for the number of turns less than 20th level they are. Range: 120 feet. Save negates.
- Animate Dead (standard LotFP version)
Note 1: The spell name and the title of the book have different spellings of the relevant wizard's name. Par Kaar/Par-Kher is inconsistent in his spelling practices in general.
Note 2: There may have been more spells in this spellbook at one time, but the last 33 pages have been scribbled over by either a mad man or a really determined toddler. Nothing can be gleamed of the secrets written on these defaced leaves.

Forest: One of my younger players changed his name after the group lost three PCs to the Sky King.
Image from another discord shows user name Jordan (Fuck You Jeff Rients).
2 laughing so hard I'm crying emojis.
That Dark Sky: In the nice way?
Forest: Just salty lol
Spider Minstrel: What, only three?]
This is the first actual play report I have seen of the Sky King being awakened, so bravo to Jordan and his group.

I found this meme on the tumblrs. If you find yourself the DM in this situation, I strongly recommend not taking the time to look up the spell description. Instead, just make some shit up. Change the spell effect every time it is cast until the player looks it up themselves.

The X is where the party encountered the hobgoblins, killing 5, routing 3, and capturing the hobgobbo sergeant. The arrow indicates stairs up to level 1. The corridor labeled "monsters" indicates where the hobgobbo enemies reside, including some undead, some sort of black cats, wererats, and an unknown invisible killer.
The party made a nonagression pact with the hobgoblin commander ("boss") and agreed to avoid the hobgoblin/orc areas of the level.
